St Nicholas

St Nicholas church is a Grade II* listed building and was the first church designed by the architect Nugent Francis Cachemaille Day.

About this church

In 1931, the foundation stone was laid and the ‘old’ hall was built and used for services. In 1932 the building was completed at a cost of £11,600. From 1963/64 an extension was added to create choir stalls to the rear of the building.

At a cost of over £1million a complete restoration was carried out in 2000/02 under the guidance of the architect Anthony Grimshaw.

The interior was redesigned with the rear west end of the church, including the choir stalls, being converted into a hall for community use. The new hall and worship area are separated by a moveable screen and a striking glass circular meeting room has been constructed at first floor level.

The exterior and east end remain as in 1932.
